About North East LEP

The North East Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) helps drive economic growth in North East England by supporting businesses to create more and better jobs for everyone. We aim to help the North East create an extra 100,000 jobs between 2014 and 2024. An ambitious target, but one we believe is achievable working with our partners in the public and private sectors. The North East LEP covers County Durham, Gateshead, Newcastle, North Tyneside, Northumberland, South Tyneside and Sunderland. The North East LEP Board is business led and chaired by managing director of Soil Machine Dynamics (SMD), Andrew Hodgson.
